9 Things from This Weekend

1 - I was a single mom this weekend while Eric was away for a friend's wedding. Doing everything alone is exhausting. I don't know how single parents or even parents with spouses for travel regularly do it. I was so happy to see him walk through that door last night! 

2 - Since Daddy was gone, we had a movie night on Friday night with popcorn & ice cream. I wanted to watch Finding Nemo, because Ella has never seen it and I want her to understand the Nemo attractions at Epcot - but oh no, we had to watch Tinkerbell & the Great Fairy Rescue for the 100th time. 

3 - I did even more spring cleaning. We have taken so. much. stuff. out of our house this past month it's crazy! It's amazing how much room it feels like we have now that the baby swing & exersaucer are gone.

4 - I spent 20 minutes in Kohl's fighting with my threenager over which Disney Princess nightgown we should buy. I really miss the days when I just got her dressed & she didn't complain. For the record, the Elsa nightgown won. 

5 - I watched a whole lot of cheerleading coverage from the USASF World Championships in Disney! Two of my cheerleaders were there competing with their all-star teams & it was so much fun to watch their routines. It isn't aired live on TV, so I relied mainly on Instagram & Snapchat to keep up with it. The routines some of these teams put on the floor just amaze me! 

6 - Livy finally got another tooth! We've been waiting for her top two teeth to pop through for what seems like forever and yesterday, I caught a glimpse of it! She would not let me take a picture of it for you all, so we'll just have to wait for it to become a little more obvious (or for her to be in a more agreeable mood.) 

7 - We spent a lot of time coloring & playing with playdough at the kitchen table. 

8 - Olivia started pulling herself up to her knees! And once I caught her all the way up to standing on her Pooh Bear walker. The standing incident ended in a pretty traumatic tumble, but she's getting stronger & more independent every day. 

9 - Aunt Brittany & Uncle Matt invited us to go to dinner with them on Sunday night at Buffalo Wild Wings. After 24 hours with just the kids, I was ready for a little adult conversation! And fried food never hurts :) 

Here's hoping that your week flies by! I know that I have a busy one on the books, and an even busier weekend ahead. That's just the way spring is though & I wouldn't have it any other way. Happy Monday!
